The Institute of Sexology is the forthcoming new exhibition to be hosted by the Wellcome Collection in London.
‘The Institute of Sexology’ is a candid exploration of the most publicly discussed of private acts. Undress your mind and join us to investigate human sexuality at ‘The Institute’, the first of our longer exhibitions. Featuring over 200 objects spanning art, rare archival material, erotica, film and photography, this is the first UK exhibition to bring together the pioneers of the study of sex.
I’m looking forward to visiting the exhibition (which is open for almost a whole year!) as I’ve not doubt it will provide fuel for my practice given some of the themes that I have been dealing with in my practice.
Through my research to date I’m already familiar with the work of many of the thinkers that are incorporated into this exhibition such as Kinsey and Freud; it’ll be interesting to see how all of their studies are contextualised in this show.
The Institute of Sexology is open from 20 November 2014 – 20 September 2015
